It's a somewhat inferior version of The Room series, which themselves are Mystlike lonely puzzle games with lots of tactile, grabby, pokey elements. With that said, there's room for entertaining games below The Rooms(?), and this fits in that space. The framing device here is a lot of Leonardo plus a bit of supernatural, instead of the "messing with elder gods" approach of The Rooms. But still, this even has the lenses to look through to find hidden stuff. I enjoyed it, but play whichever of The Rooms (and maybe The Mysts ;) if they weren't so ancient) you can get a good deal on first.

The House of Da Vinci is an escape room style puzzle game set in Renaissance Italy. Leonardo Da Vinci has gone into hiding, pursued by some mysterious assailant. The player is Da Vinci’s assistant, and you must follow the clues he left behind, as you try to discover what happened.
Gameplay is very similar to The Room series. Each room in Leonardo’s workshop has a series of puzzles that, when solved, will give you items to use with other puzzles, until you eventually unlock the path to the next room. Each puzzle has a design that looks appropriate for the time period, including a model catapult, miniature castle, a knight’s suit of armour, and Da Vinci’s tank.
Collected items can be viewed in your inventory, and often need to be opened up or combined with other items before you can use them. You also have two special lenses that can be used to view objects. One highlights hidden text, or will allow you to see inside a machine and move its internal workings to activate or unlock it. The other lens lets you see a silhouette of past events so that you can observe how objects were moved previously and replicate the sequence.
This game’s biggest flaw is that occasionally I felt like it didn’t register when I was clicking an object, like I was sure that I needed to twist or move an object and it took several attempts to actually do it. Perhaps you just have to click in exactly the correct place. I got into the habit of clicking everything several times just in case.
It took me just over 9 hours to complete the game. There’s a hint system which could help if you get stuck, I never used it but I was tempted a few times. The puzzles are usually easy to understand what the end goal is, whether its moving an object through a maze, rotating symbols to a specific combination, or pressing buttons in the correct order. The times when I was stuck were almost always a case of not being able to find missing items such as a key to unlock a door, or a lever/gear/whatever that needed to fit into a shaped hole, to allow me to turn a piece of machinery.
I would have to methodically hunt all around the room searching for something to interact with. Often there would be a small object or hidden panel that I’d missed. A number of hidden compartments contain an item and also a second smaller hidden component containing another item. Clearly Da Vinci was not just a genius, but also really sneaky. Don’t underestimate the power of closing the game and coming back a few hours later to look at things again with fresh eyes.
The House of Da Vinci is a good game that I think fans of puzzle games will enjoy.

It is very similar to the Room series, but just not as good in my opinion. Would I still recommend it? Yes. Why not as good: some puzzles are not as logical with some trial and error, which gets annoying, because the camera moves in a small "video", which just takes sooo long, if you want to just search for something quickly. I would say rather buy the room series, but if you finnished it and search for something similar, this is a good choice.

Review from Steam

Its a lesser version of the "Room" series, but will sort of scratch that itch. Easy to learn because the mechanics are nearly identical. A little clunkier, with more eye-roll-why-am-I-doing-this moments than "aha!" moments. I would recommend, but only on sale and only if you're out of "Room" series content first.

Fun puzzle game that has you trying to figure out where to use the bits and bobs you have gathered. I also really like anything related to Leonardo Da Vinci! Graphics were also beautiful. I would have preferred a way to remove the HUD for screenshots, but you can't have everything I guess, haha.

Review from Steam

Extremely good puzzle game, if you're a fan of The Room series then this will scratch that same itch. The graphics are quite nice and make the game world believable, the lighting especially makes it a visual treat. The music and sounds effects provide for a good atmosphere. The puzzles have a good difficulty ramp to them, starting off simply to explain mechanics and getting quite complex at the end, and extremely satisfying to work out. There's a hint system if you get stuck.
My only 2 complains were that the FOV (Field of view) of the viewport was quite narrow and this is a bit dizzying if you're playing on PC on a large monitor, it feels constrained and uncomfortable. And some of the puzzles rely on you finding very minor details in the environment to interact with. These are the only sections I got stuck on for very long and it was simply hunting around for the next puzzle piece which I thought was more frustrating than fun, luckily the hint system will guide you to the next location if you wish to use that (i'd recommend it)
My total playtime was 4 hours 35 minutes which seems short but it subjectively felt a lot longer because I was engrossed with the environments and puzzles.
Highly recommend this game 9/10, don't even bother waiting for a deal, I can recommend this at full price.

Amazing puzzle game, if you like The Room then you will like this. I would recommend both in the series plus all of The Room games.
